BBC WOMAN’S HOUR got a heap of successful women to share any advice that they’d have to offer their younger selves.

From a former UK Vogue editor, to skincare legend Liz Earle to TOWIE’s Lydia Bright…

Most of their advice was pretty similar: chill out.

Adwoa Aboah, who has modelled alongside Kendall Jenner on the cover of American Vogue knows things will fall into place, even if you don’t know when or where it’ll happen.

Towie’ Lydia Bright believes worrying is not conducive to anything. It will only impede you.

Actress Lily Cole was less interested in offering advice. She just wanted to go back and give her younger self a hug.

Liz Earle’s wisdom she had to share?

“Lighten up. Don’t forget to smile and enjoy the ride.” Thanks Liz, but we were hoping for some skincare advice.

Sure it’s well and good to say don’t worry when you’re successful and famous already. What can the rest of us take from the experiences of successful people who just insist “don’t worry!”?

Luckily, the video inspired some regular people to share their advice to their past selves and it’s a bit more relatable.

This one says it all. Don’t go near coloured leather or people who can’t perform the very simple task of being polite and grateful to service workers.

More specific than “don’t worry” is this important piece of advice.

Don’t worry about criticism you haven’t even gotten yet for doing/being/feeling something that you want (unless you’re considering being a Nazi or something – that’s different).

Listen. To. Your. Ma.

 Put yourself first (you’ll live to regret it otherwise).

More importantly, make sure you’re currently living by any advice you’d have for your younger self.
